Question about Breville Die Cast 800ESXL Espresso Machine
A friend has one that will not turn off - as soon as it's plugged in, the pump runs continuously. I feel pretty confident about troubleshooting the electrical parts, but we haven't figured out how to get the top cover off! The two big conical plastic inserts on either side of the portafill seem like the key, but having taken them out I can't see what to do next.
This is fairly explicit:

I can't get the clear plastic cover off the circuit board... Seems there might be another screw I am missing. Also, can't get the gray plastic cover off the left hand side, near where the power cord goes into the machine

I just tried disassembling it. With the machine facing you, the
circuit board is on the left panel. You just need to unscrew and take off the grey plastic on the left, and you will see the electric
cord and a circuit board inside a clear plastic case.
There are 2 grey plastic conical inserts (they are recessed into
the machine) one on each side, next to where the water drips into
the coffee filter, use a long philip head screw driver to loosen the
screws until the inserts drop. These two inserts are holding the top lid in place. Now with the machine facing away from you,
push the top lid forward, it should come right off.
You can now take the circuit board clear case out. Carefully
and gently pull the wires out with a piler, some are difficult to
I probed around different components. The zener diode, labeled
ZD6 (1N4749A) on the circuit board was burnt. When not burnt, you should
read about 0.46V when you test it with a multimeter. This diode
is next to 2 blue electrolytic capacitor. This zener diode is
easy to find, it is like 5 cents, definitely not $40.

After taking off the two big conical inserts, you have to slide very strongly the top from the back to the front. It will pop out and then you will be able to remove the top.

The lid slides forward and then lifts off.
